Haara et al reported recently that the presence of osteoarthritis (OA) in at least one hand joint significantly predicted cardiovascular mortality in a sample of 1560 Finnish men aged 30 or over.1 OA was ascertained radiographically and classified using Kellgren’s scoring system. The association between hand OA and male cardiovascular mortality was independent of age, education, history of workload, and body mass index.
